Crash Bandicoot Hits The Mobile Gaming Industry

Crash BandicootYou have played it on your consoles, now is the time to take the latest in the Crash Bandicoot series mobile and play the game on the move. Vivendi Games Mobile, part of the massive gaming business which is Vivendi, have today launched Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart and Crash Bandicoot Nitro Cart 3D for the mobile phone sector. The Crash Bandicoot series of games has been a multi-billion dollar earner for the company, with earlier mobile phone releases selling 3 million units alone!

The 2D (JAVA release) and 3D (Symbian release) offer the chance to take on 16 new tracks in 8 different environments, under water in outer space and many more weird and wonderful situations. The race is on to be number one and while many mobile games have lost their appeal during the transfer from the console sector, the Crash Bandicoot series is one which has retained the core of the game.

Vivendi has taken the mobile gaming sector to a new level with the release of these latest versions and when you consider that it has taken nearly 4 years to transfer this game to the mobile sector, it shows how much work and effort it has taken. While the mobile sector is unlikely to overtake or even come close to the games console and video game market, in which Crash Bandicoot has seen more than 40 million units sold in total, it is still a very interesting and lucrative area for the future.

While there are many games in the mobile gaming market that are struggling to match their performance in the main games console market, the Crash Bandicoot series is one which seems to have made the jump better than most. We are now starting to see some of the larger gaming companies reporting mobile phone game sales in the millions, which is a reflection of a changing attitude by the consumer.
